While this is still in the planning stages, let's choose the next swap's themes!
Most of you when asked wanted to stay at the 1" size, but we can, of course, add another size IF there is enough interest.
I will leave the poll up until 10/26. Once the two themes are selected, sign ups will be up until November 16th and the swaps will be due in my hands no later than January 11, 2014.
*No international swappers*
Vote for your favorite themes here by post or by sending me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
*Stashbuster prints (like in the previous six swaps)
*TRUE 1930's repros
*TRUE Civil W*ar repros
*Batiks (must prewash your fabrics for this theme, please)
*TOT (tone on tone)
*Olympic colors (blue, black, red, yellow and green TOT)
*Black and white prints
*Spring colors (pastel colors)
*Summer colors (bright colors of summer flowers)
*Fall colors (deep reds, maroon, dark oranges, golds, browns, etc.)
*Winter colors (white, blues)
*TRUE red, white and blue prints
*Small floral prints
*Children's novelty prints
*Neutrals (black, cream or white)
The guidelines would be the same as the previous swap, but always feel free to contact me if you have any questions on fabrics.This message has been edited. Last edited by: KC1930,
I voted black and white prints as that is something new to my stash.
I still have 1930's fabrics left from earlier. But I'm "easy" - I'll sew on whatever you put in front of me...
I voted for black & white but would also be open to neutrals as the as good for backgrounds

-Edgar Allan Poe-
I also would like the black and white prints!
Although I'm still so afraid of this I did vote. One day I'd like to join in all the fun.
I did vote for CW but would like neutrals also ... especially off white and tan for backgrounds
Lots more votes coming in by email and PM's...
Black & White-3
TRUE 1930's repros-1
TRUE Civil W*ar repros-1
Bump for more interest
I'm retiring 11-15. I'm looking forward to trying one of these after that magical date so will keep my eyes open
This swap won't be due until January 2014, so you have plenty of time!
Linda, did you vote?This message has been edited. Last edited by: KC1930,
Another suggestion for a future theme is novelty prints. I will add that to my list for the next swap poll.
I voted Black & White also. Should be fun
Well, it seems that black & white and white and black prints are a go! I already started, as I had tons of leftover 2 1/2" squares cut for a quilt border that I never used. I can say that the folks at work are missing those lovely fall colors!
For more information on black on white and white on black prints, check out suitable fabric samples and guidelines on the blog:
As predicted, the TRUE black and white (and TRUE white and black) prints and Stashbusters are the two themes for the seventh hexagon swap.
Be looking for the official sign up AND the poll for the eight hexie swap to be posted both here and on the blog very soon!
